The idea for a badge for the veterans of the Deutsche Bundeswehr was born in 2013 but not brought to life before on 26.th of November 2018 the definition veteran and who could get this badge was published. 

Any veteran who served in the Deutsche Bundeswehr could apply for this badge and then would get a letter with the badge after some time. I like the design, but to my likings it could have been bigger, I think the prince size of an iron cross would have been wonderfull. But here it is, mine arrived today.

Hello BlackcowboyBS,

who was the supplier of the set? Is it marked on the backside, or on the box?

How can the badge be attached? Can you provide an image from the backside?

 

Thanks

Hallo Elvis, 

Hope you don't mind me contributing to your request for the above. From the examples I have seen, I haven't noticed any makers marks on either the Badge or the Box. My guess is that 'Das Veteranenabzeichen der Bundeswehr' is made by Steinhauer & Lück. 

There are plenty commercially available on 'ebay.de'  but the prices are embarrassingly high considering they probably cost pennies to make (as with the British equivalent). 

Further info about the Badge here:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
